> Adam Lambert is returning to American Idol on Thursday, March 10 to perform an acoustic version of his new song "Aftermath." Directly after the show the song will be available on iTunes and a portion of the proceeds will go to The Trevor Project, an organization which aims to prevent LGBT youth suicide.
> What's a girl to do if her flight is delayed in Buenos Aries? If she's Cyndi Lauper, she gets on the PA and performs "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" for the other stuck passengers.
> Lady Gaga used her tour stop in Buffalo and a shout out on Twitter to urge New Yorkers to contact Sen. Mark Grisanti and tell him that they want same-sex marriage legalized in the Empire state. Want to join in the fun? Email Grisanti here.
> Looks like Lady Gaga might also want to send a tweet Donald Trump's way. Not only does he not support gay marriage, he also recently revealed he doesn't even support gay couples having the same rights as married couples. (Note: Trump is on his third -- sacred, we're sure -- marriage.)
> 19-year-old straight actor Avan Jogia has co-founded organization, Straight But Not Narrow, which he describes as "a group of men talking to men about men who like men and how men should be ok with your man friends liking men. It doesn't make you any less of a man or make it look like you're into men if you're friends with a man who likes men."
